WHERE: Nordvest Bibliotek, Rentemestervej 76, Copenhagen Nordvest
This arrangement will be held in ENGLISH
From 3rd to 30th November Nordvest Bibliotek will be home to a solo exhibition by Syrian-Armenian artist (and Copenhagen resident) Angélique Sanossian’s powerful series ‘Moharamat’.
Imperfectly translated as ‘The Forbidden’, the exhibition (which has travelled to numerous exhibitions across Europe) is Angélique’s protest at the destruction of cultural heritage during the ongoing war in Syria. Her compositions show destroyed buildings in Aleppo projected onto the female body. All of the buildings had played a role in Angélique’s life at some point in the past and lie in ruins today.
The exhibition has travelled Europe and we are thrilled to present it this year in Copenhagen for the first time as a solo exhibition.
Meet Angélique at the library on Wednesday 9th November 17.00 – 19.00, when she will also be interviewed in Speakers’ Corner by photographer Henrik Brøndsted.
You will also have the possibility to purchase these pieces of history throughout the duration of the exhibition.
